We are @EthologyScience on Twitter and /EthologyIsFascinating on Facebook. Ethology is the study of animal behaviour. Ethologists are generally interested in a behavioural process or question, rather than in a particular animal group, and will often study one type of behaviour across a number of unrelated animals. However, many species specialists, biologists, zoologists, primatologists, neuroscientists, anthropologists, veterinarians, and physicians also study and contribute to the field of eth...

Instructor: Gerald Schneider Most of the major categories of adaptive behavior can be seen in all animals. This course begins with the evolution of behavior, the driver of nervous system evolution, reviewed using concepts developed in ethology, sociobiology, other comparative studies, and in studies of brain evolution. The roles of various types of plasticity are considered, as well as foraging and feeding, defensive and aggressive behavior, courtship and reproduction, migration and navigation, ...

Written by a methodological behaviorist, this treatise critiques neo-Hullian, Freudian, Eriksonian, and Piagetian theories and presents an ethological perspective on behavior and personality development. The critique is extended to cover social learning, cognitive-developmental, neo-Freudian, and Skinnerian theories, as well as the ideas of Bandura. Assumptions for conducting research and allowing for interpretation and integration of findings are specified and discussed...

[texts]ERIC ED265650: Applying the Sociobiological Synthesis to Education. - ERIC
This paper argues that the emerging discipline of sociobiology has the potential of doing what epistemologists, developmental psychologists, psychoanalysts, and ethologists have been unable to do: to provide a theory documenting our inherited dispositions as reflected in cultural evolution and personal development. Accordingly, the paper begins with a summary of the basic concepts of sociobiology, and then shows how these concepts are compatible with a number of theories already applied in educa...

Findings of a study on the relation between 6-year-olds' attachment security and their mental representations of attachment relationships are reported. It was expected that infants whose attachment behavior seemed disorganized would be fearful of their attachment figures and experience themselves as helpless, and that these conditions would be clearly reflected in children's symbolic representation of themselves and their relationships at a later age...
